One could imagine a large total of comments, but
certainly to start out with, it would provide the translator with

This can also be achieved by adding a comments.po file which
is hand edited by translators if they want to add comments before
they reach sources.
I believe that it is pretty useless, but we could give it a try.
I know, it's not an elegant solution. I'm just trying to fulfil my
part of the context responsibility, if that is indeed partly our
responsibility. I'm keen to see an improvement in the quality of
context in PO files (aiming at something truly excellent like the
Debian Installer Level 1), so I'll put effort while I can into
anything people decide would work.
